About Bloomz

Bloomz is the award winning app that allows parents to connect with their child's teacher and other parents. It’s easy to keep parents involved with the class updates feature that allows for photo and video sharing, the class calendars with itemized events that can be linked to pages with additional information, and the communication feature that allows for sending messages with student timelines and behavior tracking. The app also has a social networking feel to it as it encourages sharing and “liking” posts from parents or teachers.

Bloomz Review

Bloomz is a great app that helps streamline teacher communication with parents. It allows teachers to have a calendar of class events, share pictures with parents, and even schedule conferences. With this teacher parent communication app, parents will never miss a moment.

What are some of the things we can do with Bloomz?

  • Translate posts into any of 84 languages!
  • Update a parent on their student’s latest accomplishment, challenge, anything at all!
  • Share photos, videos and have them accessible in the future.

  • Allow or disable comments to posts. Use read receipts if you like.
  • Using the calendar function, coordinate parent-teacher meetings, events, volunteer efforts.

Creative Use of Technology

Bloomz combines and integrates the functions of many different tools in one effective, easy-to-use app. From updating a profile picture to maintaining an interactive calendar, teachers can use Bloomz to streamline often difficult, time-consuming communication with parents.

Suitability for Use in a School Environment

Bloomz allows teachers to have two-way communication with parents, as they can chat online. Teachers can also give parents access to chat with other parents to set up carpools or playdates. Organizing classroom activities like conferences helps teachers save time and involves parents in the process, so the communication can be ongoing. Bloomz also allows teachers to combine lots of simple but important tasks such as sending out posts, announcements, or alerts.

This outstanding, easy-to use app enables teachers to communicate many pieces of classroom information to parents, easily and effectively.
